Ever since I remember myself I did not consider any other choice of profession than that of teaching. While all the kids my age wanted to play tag and hide-and-seek outdoors, I voluntarily confined myself to a fake classroom that I established in my bedroom, hung a mini chalk board on my dresser and made sure that all of my stuffed animals were well-equipped for their first day of school! Not counting my childhood games, I've been in education for over 10 years: as a tutor, library aide, volleyball coach, history teacher at a low-income Milwaukee school, examiner at Pearson and International Baccalaureate, museum volunteer; and now I am trying on the hat of a curriculum designer. It fits!
I believe history doesn't only live between textbook covers or within classroom walls. I believe everyone has a (his/her)story to tell. And I also believe that the questions my students ask are often more important than the answers.
BA in History (cum laude); BA in Political Science and International Relations (cum laude)
I have lived and been educated in two different countries: Belarus and the United States (this experience certainly makes the teaching of the Cold War interesting). I draw inspiration for my designs from many dedicated teachers I meet at various teacher seminars I attend throughout the year to stay current. I have completed an introductory course on graphic design through my local library to make my thoughts appear more attractive on paper.
